Rethinking Ethics in the Midst of Violence A Feminist Approach to Freedom

Rethinking Ethics in the Midst of Violence A Feminist Approach to Freedom

Author: Linda A. Bell Format: Hardback Release Date: 09/07/1993

Selected by Choice as an Outstanding Academic Book for 1995. Moving beyond the traditional feminist ethics of care, Linda A. Bell places an existentialist conception of liberation at the heart of ethics and argues that only an ethics of freedom sufficiently allows for feminist critique and opposition to a status quo imbued with violence. She offers a critique of Aristotelian, utilitarian, and Kantian ethics, analyzing each approach from feminist perspectives and showing how each fails women and others who resist oppression.

Visions of Women Being a Fascinating Anthology with Analysis of Philosophers' Views of Women from Ancient to Modern Times

Visions of Women Being a Fascinating Anthology with Analysis of Philosophers' Views of Women from Ancient to Modern Times

Author: Linda A. Bell Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 03/10/1983

People of Socrates' time were frequently aghast at the questions he would ask. Their responses were of the sort elicited by very dumb or ex- tremely obvious questions: Don't you know? Everyone else does. Socrates was hardly alone in his knack for asking such questions. Phi- losophers have always asked peculiar questions most other people would never dream of asking, convinced as the latter are that the answers were settled long ago in the collective wisdom of society, including ques- tions about woman: should women be educated? should they rule socie- ties? should they be subordinate in marriage? do women and men have the same virtues, or are there separate virtues for each? which of the dif- ferences between women and men are conventional, and which are natu- ral? is there a woman's work? do women and men have different types or degrees of rationality? Philosophers of the most diverse periods have raised these questions and their answers were often quite creative, not merely reflecting the conventions and mores of their societies. With the publication of this anthology, their writings will be brought together in a single volume for the first time. This anthology differs from others not just in its inclusiveness. It also contains several translations of material previously unavailable in English.
